National Children’s Dental Health Month


Posted February 2010:  Today (February 1st) starts the first day of National Children’s Dental Health Month and I feel that I should do my part spreading the word about dental health and safety all month long to my wonderful readers!  For the rest of this month, I will make sure you know the tips to promote healthy teeth and gums but you have to do your part as well!  There is information out there from free resources to promote dental health and answer your questions such as the American Dental Association (, The American Academy of Pediatric Dentists (,  your own dentist, and even thisblog.  I recommend using these resources to guide you on your journey of taking care of your teeth and your children’s teeth!  Valentine’s Day falls in February as well.  I think this an appropriate month to promote Dental Health  because we should “love” our teeth, our mouth, our tooth brush, our floss, and our gums!  I think the Valentine’s Card could go something like this:

“Roses are Red, Violets are blue, I brush my teeth, how about you?”
“Roses are Red, Violets are blue, remember to floss, so you will keep plenty of teeth, not few!”
“Roses are Red, Violets are blue, love your dentist and give them a gift card this month-maybe two!”
Ok- I think you get the point.  Just a little dental humor!!!!
